A REPAIR STRATEGY FOR CORROSION DAMAGED CONCRETE . PROCEEDINGS OF 3RD INTERNATIOAL CONFERENCE ON DETERIORATION AND REPAIR OF REINFORCED CONCRETE IN THE ARABIAN GULF, BAHRAIN, OCTOBER 21-24 1989. VOLUME 1.

A repair strategy for corrosion damaged reinforced concrete has been presented. The strategy, however, includes several unresolved repair parameters which have been fully identified. Research at King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals is currently being carried out to resolve some of these parameters. Data developed on only one parameter is presented to show that some of these parameters may have a significant effect on the long term integrity and success of a repair. Thermal incompatibility between resinous repair material and parent concrete reduces the slant shear bond strength by 36.5% after only 90 thermal cycles simulating the temperature fluctuations of a typical summer day. Cement-based material shows significantly smaller reduction (8%) with thermal cycling but shows weak bond with parent concrete even at static room temperature.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 828897.
